Lap Sit Week of 1/25

I feel like we're starting to hit a groove in our third week of storytimes this season. Here's what we were up to this week:

If You're Ready For a Story
If you're ready for a story clap your hands (clap clap)
If you're ready for a story clap your hands (clap clap)
If you're ready for a story, if you're ready for a story
If you're ready for a story clap your hands (clap clap)
If you're ready for a story stomp your feet (stomp stomp)
If you're ready for a story stomp your feet (stomp stomp)
If you're ready for a story, if you're ready for a story
If you're ready for a story stomp your feet (stomp stomp)
If you're ready for a story wave hello
If you're ready for a story wave hello
If you're ready for a story, if you're ready for a story
If you're ready for a story hello

Big Big Big
This is big big big, this is small small small
This is short short short, this is tall tall tall
This is fast fast fast, this is slow slow slow
This is yes yes yes, this is no no no

ABCs

Open/Shut Them
Open shut them, open shut them
Give a little clap clap clap
Open shut them, open shut them
Put them in your lap lap lap
Creep them crawl them, creep them crawl them
Right up to your chinny chin chin
Open wide your little mouth-
But do not let them in!

Book #1: Fuzzy Fuzzy Fuzzy by Sandra Boynton

Hands are clapping, clap clap clap
Clap your hands my darling
Toes are tapping, tap tap tap

Tap your toes my darling

Elevator Song
The city is great and the city is grand
There's a whole lot of people on a little piece of land
and we live way up on the 57th floor
So here's what we do when we go out the door
We take the elevator up, take the elevator down
Take the elevator up, take the elevator down
Take the elevator up, take the elevator down
And we turn around

Book #2: Can You Say It Too? Moo, Moo! by Sebastien Braun

What Shall We Do
What shall we do with lazy baby
What shall we do with lazy baby
What shall we do with lazy baby
Early in the morning
Roll her on the bed and tickle all over
Roll her on the bed and tickle all over
Roll her on the bed and tickle all over
Early in the morning
Heave ho and up she rises
Heave ho and up she rises
Heave ho and up she rises
Early in the morning

Head and Shoulders Baby
Head and shoulders baby, 1-2-3
Head and shoulders baby, 1-2-3
Head and shoulders, head and shoulders
Head and shoulders baby, 1-2-3
Knees and toes baby, 1-2-3
Knees and toes baby, 1-2-3
Knees and toes, knees and toes
Knees and toes baby, 1-2-3

Popcorn Kernels
Popcorn kernels, popcorn kernels
In the pot, in the pot
Shake them shake them shake them, shake them shake them shake them
'Til they pop! 'Til they pop!

One Bright Scarf
One bright scarf waiting for the wind to blow
Wiggle it high and wiggle it low
Shake it fast and shake it slow
Where did it go?

Lap Sit Week of 1/18

This was a bit of a strange week because our library was closed on Monday to observe Martin Luther King Jr. Day, so we only had 2 lap sits this week. I think we still had a lot of fun:

If You're Ready For a Story
If you're ready for a story clap your hands (clap clap)
If you're ready for a story clap your hands (clap clap)
If you're ready for a story, if you're ready for a story
If you're ready for a story clap your hands (clap clap)
If you're ready for a story stomp your feet (stomp stomp)
If you're ready for a story stomp your feet (stomp stomp)
If you're ready for a story, if you're ready for a story
If you're ready for a story stomp your feet (stomp stomp)
If you're ready for a story wave hello
If you're ready for a story wave hello
If you're ready for a story, if you're ready for a story
If you're ready for a story hello

Big Big Big
This is big big big, this is small small small
This is short short short, this is tall tall tall
This is fast fast fast, this is slow slow slow

Bumping Up and Down
Bumping up and down in my little red wagon
Bumping up and down in my little red wagon
Bumping up and down in my little red wagon
Won't you be my darling
One wheel's off and the axel's broken
One wheel's off and the axel's broken

Lap Sit Week of 1/11/2016

Storytime is back! No matter how busy we are, it always feels so quiet without storytime. I was so happy to see all the returning families and new faces this week. We had a big group on Monday morning and smaller groups for the other sessions so a couple things got switched around, but here's what we were up to this week:

If You're Ready For a Story
If you're ready for a story clap your hands (clap clap)
If you're ready for a story clap your hands (clap clap)
If you're ready for a story, if you're ready for a story
If you're ready for a story clap your hands (clap clap)
If you're ready for a story stomp your feet (stomp stomp)
If you're ready for a story stomp your feet (stomp stomp)
If you're ready for a story, if you're ready for a story
If you're ready for a story stomp your feet (stomp stomp)
If you're ready for a story wave hello
If you're ready for a story wave hello
If you're ready for a story, if you're ready for a story
If you're ready for a story hello

Open wide your little mouth-
But do not let them in!

Book #1: Do Cows Meow? by Salina Yoon


Itsy Bitsy Spider
The itsy bitsy spider went up the water spout
Down came the rain and washed the spider out
Out came the sun and dried up all the rain
And the itsy bitsy spider went up the spout again

Slowly, Slowly
Slowly, slowly very slowly creeps the garden snail
Slowly, slowly very slowly up the garden rail
Quickly, quickly very quickly runs the little mouse
Quickly, quickly very quickly to his little house

A Bouncing We Will Go
A bouncing we will go, a bouncing we will go
Hi ho the derry-o a bouncing we will go
A rocking we will go, a rocking we will go
Hi ho the derry-o a rocking we will go
A tickling we will go, a tickling we will go
Hi ho the derry-o a tickling we will go
